Not even a question...KB can hit a shot in the fourth quarter with 1 second left...LeBrum can't ...yes I said LeBrum...lol

Well both are good in what they do, but the question still remains, who is the better basketball player?

stick to talking tebow.

since 2000, LBJ has shot significantly better in the "clutch" - last 5 minutes of 4th quarter (tied or +-5 points) - 46% to 39%. he has also shot better in the final 24 seconds, last minute, and clutch situations in the postseason during the same time frame. but for some reason - rings - kobes reputation outweighs his actual production...

Well, he ain't choking now. It;s just so sad for Kobe to be injured, just when his team needs him.

Kobe is a great player but he is getting a little bit older yet. I think nowadays, Lebron is more powerfull.

Being from Cleveland does not make you know Lebron any better. It's called TV dumb ****., we all saw Lebron play when he was in Cleveland. As for choking talk about his play in the 4th quarter against Dallas when he was with Miami and I will agree with you but his days in Cleveland...? You gotta not know basketball to say that....

Lebron carried that sorry **** team to the playoffs every year except his rookie season and that was close too. Nobody on that team except for Lebron had any business in the NBA finals but Lebron dragged dragged that team there. When he was in Cleveland Lebron was a force and you Clevelanders should just learrn to say thank you to Lebron for passing through....

Wasn't trying to hurt you AIYK. Was just trying to point out some of your stupidity but in hindsight I realize you do a much better job of that than I ever could. You may not be a Cavs fan but you sure proclaimed you were from Cleveland like you knew something about Lebron we did not see...... I wont argue with your assertion but I will tell you that many haters like you will be CHOKING on a few more Lebron accolades and titles in the future..... no pun intended... hahaha
